King's Gate Primary School



Mrs Gough

Welcome to Autumn Term!

The Colour Monster starts school

This term our driving text is 'The colour monster starts school'. 

Welcome to your child's first year in Primary school, this is the start of an exciting learning adventure and this half term we will be spending time getting to know your children, helping them to develop relationships with us and with each other and learning to be part of a school community.

Through the wonderful story 'The colour monster starts school' we will have the opportunity to talk about our emotions and learn that all emotions are acceptable.

We will learn new routines, we will learn our new friends names, meet the staff in school and find our way around our wonderful building.

As the class settle we will build the timetable to include visits to our library and PE.  We will always keep you updated on our Homerun app.
